You do not indicate in your question whether you have custody or your ex has custody. If you do not have custody, the original Court in New York will very likely remain as the Court of Continuing Exclusive Jurisdiction.

If there is a standing order in place then you are required to follow it. My interpretation of don’t change the children’s residence is don’t change where they live by moving unless the specified conditions have been met. It doesn’t mean that you are prohibited from following a possession...Read more »

How can a 15 year old runaway girl press charges on her 17 and a half year old ex who physically and verbally abused her, without it affecting his mother. I understand that his mother would get into problems as well for harboring a run away, but the 15 year old girl is only trying to go against her... Read more »
Physical abuse can be a crime but verbal abuse is not. You can report a crime to police but you have no control over what, if anything, the police do with your information.
